NATIONAL HARD CANDY DAY

A favorite of young and old alike, National Hard Candy Day is celebrated annually on December 19.

Hard candy became popular in the seventeenth century as sugar prices dropped.  Previously, hard candy was something that only the well-to-do could afford.  By the mid-1800s, over 400 companies were manufacturing this popular treat.

In 2013, Werther’s Original was the best selling hard candy follow closely by Jolly Rancher.  Other popular hard candies include Dum Dum Pops, Life Savers, Tootsie Roll Pops and Charms Blow Pop.
